It feels good to wake up with a phone call with good news. This past Friday morning I got a call from my friend and study-abroad colleague Sarah Hoffman, the first thing she said being, “Congratulations!”
I didn’t know what she was talking about. She saw before I did, the first place award I won in the National Press Photograph Associations‘s February 2012 multimedia contest:
I don’t normally blog about this kind of stuff but this is the first award that I’ve won that I’ve really cared about winning. I mean that because the video that I submitted was my senior capstone project and it really was one of those projects that I actually cared about producing. And now to have it recognized by the NPPA only makes me even better and definitely encourages me to more work that I care about.
